Transfers: central defender Gerzino Nyamsi (Rennes) arrives at RC Strasbourg
After Maxime Le Marchand, who signed up for two years on Thursday (after being released by Fulham), Strasbourg found the other central defender he was looking for. This is the Franco-Cameroonian Gerzino Nyamsi (24 years old), whom Julien Stéphan, the new Racing coach, knows perfectly well because he had him under his orders in Rennes (in reserve team with young people, then in professional) .
He was coveted by other L 1 clubs
With the exception of six months on loan at Châteauroux (L 2, January to June 2018), this athletic axial defender (1.94 m, 85 kg) has indeed made his entire career so far at Stade Rennais, where he was formed and where he was under contract until June 2024. The Alsatian club have agreed with their Breton counterpart on the transfer amount, although some details on the bonuses remain to be finalized.
The former French international U 20 (2 selections) will land in Strasbourg this Sunday evening (therefore after the reception of Brest, 4th day, at 3 p.m.) to spend in principle Monday his medical examination and sign his contract, the duration of which remains at to specify. Close to engaging with the promoted Troyes at the end of July, Nyamsi, who has totaled 29 matches (1 goal) in Ligue 1, was coveted by other elite clubs (Brest, Lorient and Angers).
The RCSA remains in search of a left side
Thus, the ex-Nantes Koffi Djidji (Torino), another central defender who was also tracked, will not come. On the other hand, the RCSA remains in search of a specialist of the position of left side and remains interested in the arrival of an eccentric striker (the very courted Nîmois Zinédine Ferhat remains on its shelves).
